Crunchy Onion Barbecue Chicken

I threw this crispy BBQ chicken recipe together one night when I had two chicken breasts to use up. After adding french-fried onions and baked-on barbecue sauce, I was thrilled with how moist and tasty it turned out. My husband was, too! —Jane Holey, Clayton, Michigan
